I am getting dsl from verizon. The activate date is oct 19 but I noticed I\nget dsl light on when i tried to connect it today but did not work on the\ncomputer . Does this mean it should be working since the green light is\nlite??? I noticed when I received this packet it came msn 8 software it\ntells me I have to load the software with the msn on it. Can I keep my\ninternet explorer 6.0 instead of using the msn?? I tried today to activate\nmy dsl but I did not get a responce on thecomputer even though the light was\ngreen. I have win 98 2nd edition. Should I put a IP address in or dns in ??\ncan anyone explain how inportant it is to use the filters. ?? I realize I\nwill get noise or static on the telphone line but will this prevent the DSL\nfrom working if I do not put it on ??? Is one filter ok to use for all the\nphones when the wire comes in I will use the splitter and filter , than I\ncan go directly to the dsl modem . Is this OK. Thanks to all in advance for\nyour time, and promptness.
